Strange things are going on at present with UK lawns. Normally in the UK we have two pests to worry about and two time periods. The Chafer Grub normally damages lawns around about May and the Leatherjacket causes damage between December and April. However, this year we are seeing Chafer Grub damage occurring now and we predict from the recent extensive sightings of Leatherjackets in lawns that next Spring we will see extensive lawn damage as a result of these insects eating through the roots of the lawn.
There is a solution, timely application of the correct insecticide can protect lawns from this extensive and expensive damage.
